Good and Angry, A Groundbreaking New Book by David Powlison

Category: Counseling, Relationships, The Gospel

Good and Angry, a groundbreaking new book by Dr. David Powlison, sets readers on a path toward a faithful and fruitful expression of anger.

As broken people in today’s broken world, it doesn’t take much for us to become angry. Whether it’s turning on the news or interacting with family, friends, co-workers and peers, we all experience and respond to situations and circumstances with anger. However, Dr. David Powlison has counseled and taught thousands of men and women and yet does not describe our relationship to anger as “an anger problem,” but rather, contends, “it is a complex human response to a complex world.”

In Good and Angry: Redeeming Anger, Irritation, Complaining and Bitterness, Powlison undertakes an in-depth exploration of the roots of anger, moral judgement and righteous response by looking in a surprising place – God’s own anger – to help us see that goodness and anger can actually inhabit the same heart.

Good and Angry is full of practical help for people who struggle with irritation, complaining or bitterness and gives guidance for how to fruitfully and honestly deal with the anger we feel. Head to the ABC Bookstore to pick up your copy today!
